Liposuction with Dr. Michael Jazayeri

If you're someone who's dedicated to staying fit and healthy but can't get rid of stubborn pockets of fat, it can be frustrating. Certain areas of your body, such as your chin, love handles, thighs, or belly, might still look flabby and untoned, making you feel self-conscious.

At our practice in Santa Ana Liposuction is offered as a cosmetic treatment that can help you get rid of those unwanted fat deposits in a safe and effective way. By removing the extra fat from targeted areas, Liposuction can give you a more attractive and proportionate body shape.

Empowering Transformations

What is Liposuction?

Dr. Michael A. Jazayeri offers Liposuction in Santa Ana, that can enhance the aesthetic appearance of the body by removing excess fat. These services are suitable for individuals of all genders who are almost at their ideal weight but are struggling with stubborn fat deposits in specific areas of their bodies.

Diet and exercise are the most recommended ways to lose excess weight, but it is not always straightforward. Sometimes, it can be challenging or even impossible to lose fat in certain parts of the body. With our Liposuction service in Santa Ana, patients can target these problematic areas and eliminate relentless fat.

Liposuction can enhance a patient's physical appearance and mental well-being. Feeling good on the outside can help you feel good on the inside, too. Following the procedure, patients often feel re-energized and more self-assured. They no longer need to wear uncomfortable shapewear or conceal unflattering areas with loose clothing. With Dr. Jazayeri's Liposuction service in Santa Ana, patients can regain their confidence and feel at ease in their favorite outfits or even in their own skin.

Types of Liposuction

Liposuction isn't a one-size-fits-all procedure. Different techniques target specific needs. Tumescent Liposuction is the most common, using a tumescent solution to numb the area and remove fat. For denser fat, ultrasound-assisted Liposuction (VASER) uses sound waves to liquefy fat before suctioning. Laser-assisted Liposuction (SmartLipo) employs lasers to melt fat and tighten the skin in some cases. These are just a few examples, and Dr. Jazayeri can discuss the best option for you during your consultation.

The Benefits of Liposuction Surgery

Liposuction is one of the most multi-faceted cosmetic procedures, as it can improve multiple areas of the body at one time. Not only does it remove excess fat, but it can also enhance the targeted area’s shape and appearance. Slimming down these areas will result in a firmer look and overall improved body shape. Whether it’s uneven or chubby arms, love handles around the abdomen, or saddlebags on the thighs, Liposuction can improve these stubborn trouble spots. At our practice in Santa Ana Liposuction is most commonly performed on the following areas:

Liposuction refines your body contours by eliminating unwanted fat deposits that resist diet and exercise. It's a versatile procedure that can address multiple areas simultaneously, enhancing their shape and definition. Beyond just reducing fat, body contouring can lead to:

  • Improved Body Shape: Liposuction sculpts specific areas, such as arms, abdomen, thighs, and flanks, resulting in a more toned and proportionate physique.
  • Enhanced Confidence: By eliminating stubborn fat pockets, body contouring can boost your confidence and self-image, allowing you to feel comfortable and stylish in your clothes.
  • Targeted Fat Removal: Liposuction tackles problem areas that diet and exercise can't reach, such as love handles, saddlebags, or a double chin.
  • Firmer Appearance: Removing excess fat leads to tighter, smoother skin, giving you a more youthful and revitalized look.

Transforming Specific Areas with Liposuction

Here's a closer look at how Liposuction can address common concerns:

  • Abdomen: Liposuction can help to eliminate the persistent belly fat that often remains after pregnancy or weight loss, providing a flatter stomach.
  • Arms: Excess fat in the arms can also be targeted with Liposuction, however, sagging skin may not be addressed. Combining body contouring with arm lifts can provide a solution for both issues, leading to better outcomes.
  • Buttocks: The buttocks can be reshaped and refined using Liposuction, which may involve reducing their size to create a more balanced figure.
  • Flanks: Love handles can be eliminated by using flank Liposuction, which can sculpt the waistline to create an hourglass figure and a V-shaped abdomen.
  • Male Breasts: The chest contour can be made more masculine by using body contouring to effectively reduce gynecomastia (enlarged male breasts).
  • Neck: Liposuction can be used to define the jawline by removing fat deposits that contribute to a double chin, helping to create a more youthful appearance.
  • Thighs: Inner and outer thigh fat can be streamlined using body contouring, resulting in smoother and leaner-looking legs.

Hips: Body contouring can be used to refine the hip curve, creating a more balanced and feminine silhouette.

Elevate Your Self-Expression

Liposuction Candidates

If you're thinking about getting Liposuction, it's important to know that it works best for people who have already lost weight and kept it off for a while. It's also important to have skin that can bounce back after the fat is removed, so if you have a lot of loose skin, you might want to think about getting a different kind of surgery. For example, if you have loose skin on your tummy or arms, a tummy tuck or arm lift might be a better option.

What issues does Liposuction address?

Liposuction is a surgical procedure designed to address various issues related to body contouring and fat reduction. Here are some common concerns that it addresses:

Excess Fat Deposits

The procedure is primarily used to remove localized fat deposits that are resistant to diet and exercise. These stubborn fat pockets often accumulate in areas such as the abdomen, thighs, hips, buttocks, arms, chin, and neck.

Body Contouring

By selectively removing fat cells, body contouring can help reshape and contour specific areas of the body, enhancing overall proportion and symmetry. Liposuction can create smoother, more defined contours, providing patients with a slimmer and more aesthetically pleasing silhouette.

Improving Body Confidence

Many individuals struggle with confidence and self-esteem issues due to perceived flaws in their body shape. This procedure eliminates unwanted fat and enhances body contours, leading to increased self-assurance and improved body image.

Treatment of Gynecomastia

For men, the procedure can be used to treat gynecomastia, a condition characterized by excess breast tissue development. By removing excess fat and glandular tissue from the chest area, Liposuction can create a more masculine chest contour and alleviate associated psychological discomfort.

Resolving Lipomas

This body contouring procedure can also be utilized to remove lipomas, benign fatty tumors that often develop beneath the skin. By carefully extracting these fatty deposits, Liposuction can help alleviate discomfort, reduce cosmetic concerns, and prevent recurrence.

Enhancing Surgical Results

In certain cases, Liposuction may be combined with other surgical procedures, such as breast augmentation or abdominoplasty (tummy tuck), to enhance the overall outcome. By refining contours and eliminating excess fat, Liposuction can optimize the results of these procedures, achieving a more harmonious and balanced appearance.

Consultation and Preparation

Embracing Change

As a first step, Liposuction patients will have a meeting with their plastic surgeon to discuss their goals, health history, and the details of the procedure. During this meeting, the surgeon will examine the areas that need treatment and suggest realistic expectations and possible risks. While there is no set rule for how much a patient should weigh before surgery, they may be advised to lose weight and reach a stable weight that is close to their goal. This can be done through healthy eating and exercise, which will help the surgery go smoothly.

Preparing for Liposuction may also involve some medical tests, stopping certain medications, quitting smoking, and arranging for help during the recovery period. By participating in the consultation process and following the doctor's instructions, patients can make sure they are ready for the procedure and have the best chance for a successful outcome.

Redefining Beauty

The Liposuction Procedure

Liposuction is a surgical body contouring procedure that removes localized deposits of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise. During the procedure, a tumescent solution, consisting of lidocaine (numbing medication), epinephrine (to minimize bleeding), and saline (saltwater), is inserted into the target area. This solution numbs the area, reducing blood loss and making fat easier to remove.

Small incisions are then made, and a cannula, a thin tube connected to a suction device, is inserted to gently loosen and suction out the liquefied fat. The type of anesthesia used (local or general) depends on the area treated and the amount of fat to be removed. Liposuction procedures can range from under an hour to several hours and may be performed in stages for safety reasons. In some cases, depending on the extent of the procedure, an overnight hospital stay might be necessary.

Contours and Confidence

Results, Recovery, and Aftercare

Liposuction patients typically begin to see initial improvements in body contour within a few weeks, with full results becoming apparent over several months as swelling subsides. During the recovery period, patients should expect some downtime and discomfort, avoid strenuous activities, and follow post-operative instructions provided by their surgeon. This includes wearing compression garments, refraining from smoking and alcohol, and adhering to proper incision care to minimize scarring.

To maintain long-term results, patients should adopt a healthy lifestyle with regular exercise and a balanced diet and attend follow-up appointments to monitor progress and address any concerns. Proper aftercare and lifestyle habits are essential for optimizing outcomes and achieving lasting improvements in body shape and confidence.

How much does Liposuction cost?

The cost of Liposuction varies depending on factors such as the extent of the procedure, the surgeon's expertise, facility fees, and geographic location. Prices typically range from a few thousand to several thousand dollars.

Liposuction may not be covered by insurance, but Dr. Jazayeri's practice understands that cost can be a barrier. That's why we offer financing options through multiple lenders like CareCredit and Alphaeon Credit. By applying to both (each with its own approval criteria), you can explore financing options that make achieving your desired body more accessible.

Liposuction Frequently Asked Questions

A: Liposuction is designed to reshape your body, not replace a weight loss plan. While some weight loss might occur (typically 0.5 to 3 lbs per session), the primary goal is to sculpt specific areas for a more toned appearance.

A: Recovery time depends on the treated areas and your individual healing rate. Most liposuction patients can return to work within one to two days, but strenuous activity should be avoided for two weeks. Dr. Jazayeri will provide specific post-operative instructions to ensure optimal healing.

A: Liposuction does not have any impact on cellulite or severely sagging skin. Those who are close to their optimal weight with good skin elasticity are the best candidates for this procedure. The removal of excessive fat can result in loose skin. However, body contouring can significantly enhance your body shape by targeting fat pockets that are difficult to eliminate through diet and exercise. After the procedure, you can expect to have firmer and more defined contours, which can lead to a boost in confidence.

A: Swelling is common after body contouring, so initial results will be visible after about four weeks. The final, refined contours can take a few months to fully emerge. Dr. Jazayeri will discuss the expected timeline during your consultation.

A: Liposuction involves creating small incisions that are only a few millimeters in length. Although these incisions may cause minor scarring, the scars should eventually fade over time like any other minor scar. Additionally, your physician will make every effort to minimize the appearance of these scars.

A: Liposuction is not exclusive to women. It is a cosmetic procedure that can be performed on both men and women to address stubborn fat deposits and improve body contours.

A: While discomfort and soreness are common after the procedure, pain during the procedure is typically managed through local anesthesia or sedation, ensuring patient comfort.

A: Risks associated with Liposuction include infection, bleeding, fluid accumulation, changes in sensation, contour irregularities, and adverse reactions to anesthesia.

A: The liposuction results are long-lasting, as fat cells removed during the procedure do not regenerate. However, maintaining a healthy lifestyle is essential to prevent weight gain in untreated areas.

A: During your consultation with Dr. Jazayeri, you'll discuss your goals and medical history, undergo a physical exam, and learn about the potential risks and benefits of liposuction.

A: The type of anesthesia used depends on the area and extent of body contouring. Local anesthesia with sedation is common for smaller areas, while general anesthesia might be used for larger areas.

A: Yes, wearing a compression garment after body contouring helps minimize swelling and improve healing.

A: After the liposuction procedure, expect activity restrictions for a few weeks and some initial swelling and discomfort.

A: Liposuction can be combined with procedures like tummy tuck or breast lift for a more comprehensive body contouring result.

A: Liposuction is usually cosmetic and not covered by insurance. However, some insurance plans might cover associated costs if medically necessary (e.g., body contouring for gynecomastia).

In Dr. Jazayeri's hands, an array of procedures can be carried out under local anesthesia, often leading to quicker recovery times and lower complication rates. These procedures include many facelifts, liposuctions, neck lifts, Brazilian butt lifts (BBLs), mini tummy tuck and, in certain cases, even breast and arm lift.
